7 Tips to Spice Up Your Kitchen Renovation

October 1, 2013

2009 Georgie Awards winner – “Best Kitchen Renovation (under $100,000)”

The kitchen is often called the heart of the home, and with good reason – it’s likely the most used room in the house. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Homework and taxes done at the kitchen table. And if you entertain, you know that the party tends to always end up in the kitchen. reVISION shares 7 tips to spice up your kitchen renovation.

1.Use Quality Materials – Quality drawer slides and hinges mean cabinet doors will stay closed and drawers won’t stick. Stay away from drawers that are stapled together or made of particleboard.

2.Decide Whether to Paint or Stain – Though stained-wood cabinetry is forgiving, most finishes date quickly and aren’t easily altered. Brush-painted cabinets can lend a unique personality.

3.Install an Island that Works – Beware of placing a bulky cube in the middle of the room. Ideally, an island should be unencumbered by appliances, but you may want it to house a dishwasher, sink or a cooktop.

4.Incorporate an Adjacent Dining Room – A clever kitchen renovation design, plus the appropriate lighting and furniture, will let you adapt the room’s atmosphere to suit any occasion.

5.Determine cabinet heights – If you have high ceilings choose cabinets that reach the ceiling. High ceiling cabinets offer more storage.

6.Select an elegant countertop – Quartz countertops add elegance and warmth to your kitchen.

7.Add preparation space – Incorporate more than one work centre so that more than one person can work efficiently in the kitchen at one time. A self-standing chopping block, service island, or other similar kitchen feature will increase convenience in your work space.
